Caerhays Castle in Cornwall was built at the beginning of the 19th century for John Bettesworth-Trevanion. It was designed by John Nash, one of the most prominent architects of the Georgian and Regency periods, who was also responsible for Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch and the Royal Pavilion at Brighton.

Edward Bawden would often travel to Cornwall on painting holidays and produced many watercolours of the often dramatic landscape, including the deserted tin mines, quarries and churches.

There will be a selection of Bawden watercolours, as well as prints and drawings, for purchase at the 2021 Fry Art Gallery Annual Exhibition and Sale on the 20th and 21st November.
